a deck of cards always will
will always never will always will
Through inquiry and a seamless integration of theory and practice, the students in the Pratt Integrative Course, “Games, Glitches, and Creativity” created cards that were inspired by the Oblique Strategies cards of Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt and the performance-based “events” of George Brecht’s artist’s book Water Yam. These cards are meant to promote creativity, encourage lateral thinking, and blur the boundaries between disciplines. As creators and thinkers, students need to be able to tackle unpredictable and complex challenges that require experiments, new discoveries, and adjustments from numerous and diverging directions.
